Rachel and Tony met in a bar/restaurant while Rachel was having drinks with friends and Tony was there for a party. There was a DJ, dancing and an obvious spark between them. They fell in love, and the rest is history. We met Rachel and Tony at Katie and Mike’s wedding last year and once they were engaged they contacted us about being their photographers. We had a blast earlier this year when we did their at home engagement session, and were so looking forward to their wedding this summer.
Rachel’s mom came up with the idea of having the wedding at Gitt Memorial Library in Hanover. It’s a landmark in the area and they could DIY almost everything for the wedding! The day came and everything was decked out in blush and gold, everything sparkled. Not only did the bridesmaids pick out their own dresses, each different from the next, but the groomsmen also picked out their own outfits.
Rachel and Tony were both looking forward to celebrating with everyone they love and celebrate they did! They had so much fun dancing the night away with their friends and family :)
